    BlackBerry Z10 looks set for record sales on first day in Canada

    BlackBerry 10 sales look set for record on first day in Canada | FP Tech Desk | Financial Post

    BlackBerrys Z10 smartphone has attracted record orders at Canadian wireless carrier BCE Inc. and analysts say sales are off to a strong start in the U.K., sparking a 22% stock rally over the past two days.

    BCE, Canadas No. 2 carrier, said early orders for the Z10 have topped any previous BlackBerry model, while one Carphone Warehouse Group Plc outlet in the U.K., where the phone has been on sale since Jan. 31, sold out of the model in under half an hour, local staff said.

    Signs of brisk early sales are emerging as Chief Executive Officer Thorsten Heins prepares to give a speech Tuesday at 1 p.m. local time to Canadian investors in Toronto. BlackBerry is counting on a robust start before the Z10 goes on sale in the U.S. in March to help reverse six quarters of declining sales and years of market-share losses to rivals led by iPhone maker Apple Inc.
